Cheetah Reintroduction Project in India

India is once again set to be a home of cheetahs after 70 long years.
It's the only large carnivore that got completely wiped out from India since the last one died in Chhattisgarh in 1948 and the species was totally declared extinct in the country in 1952.
But guess what?

Once again, cheetahs are set to make a historic return to India today on the 17th of September. By the launch of the Cheetah introduction project, eight cheetahs will be brought in a customized cargo flight from the southern African country Namibia to Japan in Rajasthan. A helicopter will then bring them to Kuno-Palpur National Park in Madhya Pradesh and the inauguration will be done by PM himself. But how is the introduction of wild species going to help India? Yes, it is. The cheetahs will help in the restoration of open forests and the grassland ecosystems of India.
